"A lovely place to be!"
We had a cosy apartment in a nearby building which was super cute, clean and comfy with an excellent shower and good kitchen facilities. The views from the apartment were excellent and its location in old town was perfect for exploring :) The staff were really friendly and helped us out with finding things and learning bits of Polish. It was a lovely […] place, I'd definitely stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Świetna lokalizacja, miła obsługa i fajne pokoje"
Hostel położony jest kilka kroków od Pl. Zamkowego. Dobry dojazd autobusami (160) i tramwajem (18) z Centrum. Czyste i ładne pokoje, bardzo miła obsługa. Świetna baza do zwiedzania Warszawy. Zdecydowanie polecam!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A bit hard to find, but nice spot in Stare Miasto/Old town and good price and nice people! Beds where however a bit hard, we had another friend in the floor under who had different bed. For such price, I'm very happy and I'd like to come back to same hostel again :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Mycket nöjd med hotellet. Ligger bra inne i gamla stan. Nära till allt. Nära buss och subway. Rent och fint. Trevlig personal. Kommer till att välja detta hotel nösta gång igen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Płacisz głównie za lokalizację"
Hostel jest świetnie położony, zaraz przy Rynku Starego Miasta. Niestety, okazało się, że nasz "dwuosobowy pokój z łazienką" okazał się w rzeczywistości pokojem 4-osobowym (1 podwójne łóżko + 1 piętrowe) z łazienką na korytarzu - łazienka jest zamykana na klucz od pokoju, jednak żeby do niej dotrzeć trzeba z pokoju wyjść. Do tego w pokoju unosił się […] dziwny zapach jakby farby zmieszanej z czymś bliżej nieokreślonym - szkoda, że obsługa nie pomyślała o przewietrzeniu pokoju przed przybyciem gości. Sama obsługa natomiast - panie z recepcji - były bardzo miłe i im nie mam nic do zarzucenia. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fint til prisen"
God pris og fantastisk beliggenhed lige i den gamle bydel. Sød og venlig betjening. Vi boede i en lejlighed som ligger lidt fra selve hotellet. Lille køkken, stue med sovepladser og fint badeværelse. Sengene er ikke de bedste, men går an efter at have gået byen rundt hele dagen. :) Det er ikke luksus på nogen måde, men vil man bo billigt er det ganske […] udemærket!

Flott og rimelig alternativ til hotellGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Spenderade 3 nätter i ett privat rum för tre personer. Hade en helt egen lägenhet komplett med kök, ny kaklat badrum, bra sängar, tv och eget internet. Ligger otroligt bra till i gamla stan med en mängd matställen och dylikt precis utanför dörren. Bo bättre till detta priset går inte. VI hade även blivit av med vårt baggage på flyget ner men detta hjälpte […] receptionen till med genom att ringa och kontrollera om de hittat väskorna. Kommer bo här igen!

"characterless, dark, cold, empty 'apartment'"
07/02/14 Nostramadeus Warsaw, Poland
We were offered this apartment because the double room we had booked at the hostel was offered to a group. We were told this was a good deal; it wasn't. The apartment is small, pretty empty, feels and is cold, and smells. There is no tea/coffee/milk which there is at the hostel. A few minutes' walk to the Old/New Town barbican gate, some 7 minutes' walk from Old Town square, requires an uphill climb with luggage up a cobbled street. Far from shops or public transportation. Staff speak good English, but they gave us this apartment without asking in place of a double room we had booked. The apartment had a stale smell in the air. The room was not too big, yet it was pretty empty, cold and characterless. No kitchen, just an old electric heating plate and a pot or two; next to zero cooking utensils. Noisy fridge; we had to unplug it in the night. Located on the ground floor, with windows on street level thus offering no privacy. Furniture minimal. Located in an old building off a dilapidated hallway.
"Great location and good value."
03/21/14 Adam B Swindon, United Kingdom
This was our second time at the Kanonia, mainly due to the great location and helpful staff. The hostel was very busy with a group of kids so the owner/manager gave us a one room private apartment with kitchen just a few yards away. Its easy to get to and tremendous value.
"best price and location for groups to explore warsaw"
02/09/14 Olga_Khabibulina Minsk, Belarus
This hostel is the best located and brings you the best prices for groups. It's easy found and excellently situated in the very heart of Warsaw. It has good connections with local transport which takes you to any bus or railway station or airport.
"Great value and location, lovely and warm, but miserable staff! "
12/27/13 James E
Stayed for a long weekend in early December - snowed from start to finish and we were grateful for the lovely warm apartment at hostel kanonia. Although the facilities are quite basic - you'll need to pack towels and a soap bag - we had a fairly well equipped kitchen and could have cooked quite happily. The location is right off the square in the old town and couldn't be better for pottering around the bars and cafes in the side streets. It's a bit of a walk across town if you visit the uprising museum (a must) and worth the taxi fare on cold days. If arriving by taxi be aware that the old town has limited car access so you may need to be dropped and walk. Make sure you've got a map! The only downside was the staff, who didn't really acknowledge our presence and could have been a lot more welcoming and helpful. When we checked out we noticed several activities - including a ghost walk - had been and gone and it would have been helpful if they'd mentioned them! Otherwise though a really good budget choice in a great location in Warsaw.
"Worst hostel experience ever."
07/25/13 Dick B Manchester, England, United Kingdom
I've stayed in many hostels around Europe and this is by far the worst. We requested a double room but were given a twin, when we asked we were told to push two beds together until a double became available the next day. Just as well we moved because the desk (slab of wood protruding from a wall) collapsed under the weight of a bag. The room we moved to was a 3 quarter bed next to a bunk bed. I felt as though I was sleeping in army barracks, not the double room I imagined for a romantic city break for my girlfriend's birthday. The staff were socially odd. All of them. They always helped when asked, but appeared very reluctant to do so. When I asked for two towels, I was handed a hand towel and a bath mat. The walls appear to be made from paper. A couple in the room next towards came back late and had a conversation and then an argument (not the fault of the hostel). It was as though they were in the room with us. DO NOT be tricked by the pictures, they are at best deceiving, at worst pure fantasy. I think they also do apartments and it can be easy to assume the private rooms will look like the ones on the pictures. They don't. Definitely do not stay here, it is appalling value for money. The old town location may be appealing but it is worth staying somewhere nicer and cheaper and getting a bus, which are extremely cheap anyway.
"Excellent, Central Location"
06/11/13 FredrickKnows Glasgow, United Kingdom
Myself and three friends stayed for four nights. We were given the private apartment, which is located about 200m down the road, just off the Old Town Square - easily within walking distance of main tourist attractions. The room itself was very big, with our own internet and TV, both worked fine. There was a small kitchen with basic cooking facilities. Room was very secure with double lock with deadbolt, plus a lock on the main door into the apartment block. Beds were comfy and clean. Bathroom was fine, apart from the missing window in the door which meant my 'hilarious' friends could annoy me when on the toilet... Overall, a fantastic hostel at an excellent price. One point off for the bathroom, and the fact there was no way to socialise with others in the hostel due to the separate apartment. Would definitely stay again!
"OK Hostel for Warsaw"
06/09/13 SoCalSunshine951 Austin, Texas
The hostel itself is ok. Our group stayed in a 4 person room which was fairly spacious, however the upper level of the bunk bed appeared to be broken (no one slept on that part!). The bathrooms were fine for a hostel, and there was a small kitchen downstairs with coffee and tea. It is located in the old part of Warsaw where there wasn't a whole lot going on in the evenings so we had to travel for fun nights out. The staff was friendly and helpful when we needed advice on what to see in town. This was one of the cheaper hostels we found in Warsaw with a 4 person room we could lock our stuff into.

Absolutely brilliant! The best staff ever! :) We will come again! I want to say thank you to all staff we had met! We had wonderful time in Warsaw, my English friends were so glad to visiting Poland! Dziekuje serdecznie za niesamowity pobyt w Waszym hostelu. Z pewnoscia powrocimy. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.

Great location (but a bit tricky to find), friendly staff (even the ones that were grumpy about working Christmas eve), crazy guests, comfy beds. A bit cheeky that they pass off 2 beds and a couch as a "private 4 bed apartment", but sorted it out pretty quickly.
"Cheap, good location.."
11/12/12 caoimheobm London, United Kingdom
Chose this hostel for its location which is very good when compared to a lot of other hostels in Warsaw. The Old Town has a lot more beauty and character than the city center where most hostels are. It's also a cheap hostel. Down sides are the bedding is old and worn and the bathroom is very small and not always very clean. Also it's quite a small hostel with not many guests so there's not much atmosphere/chance of meeting people. Overall though if you're looking for somewhere cheap, comfortable and in a great location for a couple nights it's a good choice. The 8 bed dorm has lockers, and there's free wifi though you might only be able to get the signal in the communal area.
